For each of us there comes a time when we need to decide who we’re going to be. The choices are clear: addiction or recovery, insanity or peace, death or life.
Paulo Coelho said, “Stop being who you were and become who you are.”
The Bible promises, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).
We all want the joy of an addiction-free life, but how do we get there?
Writing for Harvard Business Review, Robert Kaplan offers three specific keys to success in his article, “Reaching Your Potential.”
- Know yourself.
- Excel at critical tasks.
- Demonstrate character and leadership.
Make your own list. Then work the list. Stop being who you were and become who you are in Christ.
Recovery Step: Recovery doesn’t just happen. It starts with a decision to walk away from who we were in order to become who God says we are – victors and overcomers.
